Wednesday Writing

So Wednesday is my official writing update day. I have so many story projects going on and I need a push to get some done. So I will be trying to post each Wednesday about how my writing adventures are going (and I may need a swift kick in the pants by you guys sometimes).

Current Active Project:

The Last Mountains - 13,468 (handwritten) = 15,766 (typed)

A equine shapeshifting family is being hunted to near extinction and the young new leader must go against all her lessons and approach the elite council for aide. Will they help her? How will she keep her family's traditions and values alive, let alone her herd?

Tamlyn Marie's Grace -

Think Cinderella only with a matchmaker ;)

Other Works in Progress:

The New Old Home - 17,193 words

Everyone dreams of winning the lottery, but what would you do with that money? That is the question presented to Natalie, when she is at the lowest point in her life, she is presented with an opportunity to make any normal person's dreams come true, but all those winnings can't give her what she wants most.

Princess Bs - 32,131 words

A story about a woman, recently divorced and returned to her home town to figure out what is next. She encounters an old friend and spends a weekend with him and his daughters. Feelings that are long since buried are rising up again, but are her recent loss and his current life going to stand in the way of their happily ever after?

Night Rider - 17,229

Alice is a recent high school graduate who is a very accomplished competitive rider in Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, and Western/Rodeo. Her parents had arranged for her to attend a private college on the east coast geared specifically to equine professions. However, Alice wants to focus on her studies in English Literature. When she arrives at the college she hides her riding abilities, but can she keep her talent and love of horses hidden?

Other Ideas Plotting:

Bloodsoar's Story
A pegasus struggles through life, ejected from the herd, near capture by humans.

The Assassin's Assassin
A student learns what the school is really teaching and sets out to destroy those who support the program.

Angel Story
Angels battle out an age old feud in a parallel world


So it is a new year and time for new goals.  Hopefully I can actually accomplish something throughout this year! I had high hopes for last year but wasn't able to reach my goals.

Oh well, we start anew in 2013!

So for my new writing goals I am going to keep them simple and achievable.

Goal #1
Catch up on typing on Tamlyn Marie's Grace

Goal #2
Plot/outline ending of The Princess Bs

Goal #3
Obtain voice recorder and start making notes for stories using it

Goal #4
Reach 50,000 words in one of my novels

I would like to achieve more but I want to prove to myself that I can keep and reach the goals I set for myself, even with little Munchkin running my life ;)

So what writing goals have you set for yourselves this year?!


  1. I think those are excellent goals! You had a busy year last year, so this year will be a good one for you to get caught up. :) I'm hoping to get at least 2 novels published, and another writing project. *crosses fingers* But, at the very least, one novel, and one writing project. :)

    1. Thank you, hopefully with being in the office I can get some writing done between files. I think the voice recorder will be helpful too, so that I can record thoughts instead of writing them down while juggling Munchkin.

      Those sound like great goals for you! You seem to have so much momentum going with your writing, might as well roll with it and keep the ball going!
